Nollywood Actor, Olaiya Igwe Begs Nigerians For Forgiveness –
Nigerians are slamming popular Nollywood actor, Olaiya Igwe over his apology to Nigerians over his campaign for Bola Ahmed Tinubu as President of Nigeria.
Refreshing your memory, Olaiya Igwe made headlines last year, when he shared a video of himself n**ked praying for BAT. In the clip, Olaiya was standing at a river bank butt n@ked as he prayed to his creator to make Tinubu win the 2023 general election.
In a now-deleted video on his Instagram page, Olaya apologized to Nigerians for the video, blaming it on the revelation he received over BAT.
According to him, Tinubu has been of great help to him, especially concerning his health and he had received a revelation to do the video. He noted how he received insults and curses from Nigerians.
“I am using this opportunity to greet everyone listening to me. I am here to talk about Bola Ahmed Tinubu. BaAT when he was contesting for President, because of the things he did for me, especially on my health. Revelation came to me that I should do something for him at a certain location and I went and did it. After that, I received lots of curses and insults. But I wasn’t angry with it, because such is life”.
Unfortunately, Nigerians didn’t buy his apology as they took to social media to drag him.
One Symply Damie wrote, “Na nonsense revelation you receive ooo. You don’t need to be sorry, una daddy go take care of you na no worry. He go buy foodstuffs for you as foodstuffs no cost for Aso Rock
One Happy Bwoy wrote, “When revelation come for you to do something, must you video the scene? Just asking nooo. Some people can’t even do things outside camera again for their life. Everything must come to the net
One Bright wrote, “You go explain tire
One Shukura Omotolani wrote, “They play
One Aardah wrote, “You go explain tire
One Akin Pelumi wrote, “Babani dey get roles for movies again
One Alimie Rinoso wrote, “E don dey touch u abi
One Olayoke Kan Bayi wrote, “Y baba no add effect on this video”.
Recall that Olaiya at the time defended his actions with an excuse that, Tinubu’s wife helped him during his trying times. He recounted how Remi Tinubu took care of him when he was ill and even offered to fly him out of the country for treatment.
Doubling down on his words in an interview with TVC, ‘Your View’, he revealed that he was commanded to do it spiritually.
His action made The Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners of Nigeria (TAMPAN) summon him and had reportedly faced a disciplinary committee.
One social media user, Idayat had sent a message to him over the hardship in the country, admonishing the movie star to use the same strength he used while campaigning for President Tinubu to help in making the country better.
She urged him to use the same energy to return to the river and appeal about the hardship in the country.
